Searching for a harmonic balance between the on-line and the off-line. Looking for those places where technology connects us to — rather than disconnects us from — the space/time of our 'real world'.
The taking a break from technology approach doesn't work, it isn't a sustainable model even on the personal level and it promotes and encourages the disconnect between the digital and the natural that it claims to be a response to.
We often view technology as being a distraction from nature, with the two being in opposition. Is it possible to use technology to re-connect with our natural world? Can the digital and the natural be used to protect both our planet and ourselves? Can we develop a deeper appreciation for our world — all aspects of it — through better integrating our experiences online with those irl?
